Akhtar backed Pakistan to win the Asia Cup 2023 tie

Mahesh Bhatt offered Shoaib Akhtar Bollywood, movie Gangster. However, he turned down the offer because of his cricketing commitments.

In his recent interview with Radio City, the veteran spoke about his career option if he was not a cricketer.

“I would have been a gangster if not a cricketer. However, a good one and not the bad one. I am saying that because Mahesh Bhatt offered me the Bollywood movie Gangster. When I asked him why, he said I look like one. He wanted me to that film because I was a perfect pick for the role,” he said.

Shoaib was one of the fearsome bowlers of his generation and won several games for Pakistan. He currently works as a commentator.
